December 13, 2019: Democratic presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg on Friday unveiled a climate plan to slash U.S. carbon emissions by 50% in ten years, by slapping tougher pollution standards on new gas-fired power plants and replacing coal with cleaner energy sources like wind and solar.
December 12, 2019: The science of climate change is, at its heart, fairly simple. When we emit greenhouse gases like carbon dioxide, more heat gets trapped in the Earth’s atmosphere, raising global temperatures and destabilizing the climate. The political path to stopping that from happening is infinitely more complex – a ...

December 4, 2019: Global consumption of coal declined unexpectedly this year, but a surge in oil and gas pushed up greenhouse gas emissions over all.
December 4, 2019: Slowdown this year in rising greenhouse gases does not negate long-term trend, finds carbon budget analysisCarbon dioxide emissions rose weakly this year as the use of coal declined but natural gas took up the slack, a comprehensive study of the global “carbon budget” has found.The rise in emissions was much sma...
December 4, 2019: Emissions of CO2 have risen in 2019, say researchers, as oil and gas use continues to grow.
December 4, 2019: A surprise drop in coal use in the United States and Europe has helped to slow the growth of global carbon dioxide emissions this year, with softening demand in China and India also contributing, according to a study published on Wednesday.
December 4, 2019: A new report held a few silver linings, however, as the growth was slower than in recent years.
December 4, 2019: Carbon dioxide emissions, one of the main contributors to the climate changes bringing extreme weather, rising oceans, and more frequent fires that have killed hundreds of Americans and cost the U.S. billions of dollars, are set to reach another record high in 2019. That’s the word from the Global Carbon Proj...
December 4, 2019: We are doing nowhere near enough to limit climate change. Greenhouse gas emissions are rising when they should be falling. Countries need to urgently increase action or we will face a future of rising seas, extreme weather events and increased human misery. Sound familiar? Of course it does. Scientists, the United N...
December 4, 2019: The average American and Australian generates nearly 3½ times the global average of carbon dioxide pollution.
December 4, 2019: While increase from 2018 to 2019 is lower than in previous years, the effects of the increase will still be felt. Read more...More about Tech, Climate, Science, Mashable Video, and Carbon Emissions
